You must have really stood out in the crowd! It's so common for NAMM
attendees to be using other people's badges that it's a running joke.
Of course in recent years NAMM (the organization) HAS been tightening
access, so you may have been caught in a sweep.

I've never noticed guards between the halls (the freely connect at
two points), but then I usually have a legit badge. Walking around
badgeless is not a viable solution. I might allow you to make a
connection for a real badge though.
